We’ve hit the -ber months and I am super pleased! The holidays are the best and I have that ~10-day agency break in December to look forward to. Color me ready to hibernate.
Here’s how I did last month:
Clean up my Pinterest – I deleted several boards, which qualifies as cleaning up. That’s it. I succeeded. Moving on…
Make my first Buddha bowl – failed. I bought a 1lb bag of quinoa and it didn’t have the price displayed but I thought— how expensive can quinoa be?! I had gotten a 4lb bag for PHP400-600 pesos before, after all.
It was PHP936. Or PHP963. I was too speechless when the cashier scanned it and my chicken shit brain blanked. My mom told me I should have just asked the cashier to cancel the item and next time this happens to me, I WILL. Months ago, I bought a huge jar of sundried tomato pesto under the impression it was ~PHP200. I was wrong, the price was triple that and I froze and just paid for the damn thing. Lesson learned.
Back to the Buddha bowl: disheartened by the darn quinoa (which I’ve only eaten once since purchasing the overpriced bag), I forgot all about Buddha bowls until it was too late. Bottled tuyo and white rice are way yummier anyway.
PS: I’m giving up on quinoa. Just give the Peruvians back their food.
Drink more green tea – it’s still not a daily habit but I’ve drank more green tea in the past month than I have my whole life.
Read 3 books from my book stack – I finished Anatomy of a Misfit and Crazy Rich Asians. I tried to get into Good Omens but I wasn’t in the mood and I’m shelving Rich Bitch for now.
Work out at least 2x a week
Holy crap WHAAAAAAAT?
Don’t get excited, I just plan on doing the 7-Minute Workout or some variation of it. Someone credible please write a lazy girl’s guide to fitness or something.
Totally declutter my room
I’m reading Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and my fingers are just itching to throw shit out. I think this is actually possible because Joey will be away most of the month so I’ll have two free weekends. Does anyone know the best way to dispose of books and old magazines? I’m really not keen on lugging them around to donate, especially since I don’t drive.
September reading list
I hope to finish 3 books this month: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, This Will Make You Smarter, and My Heart and Other Black Holes. I will probably drop one of them when I get a copy of Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me? or when the small paperback edition of China Rich Girlfriend hits shelves (I’m too cheap to spend PHP700+ on fluff fiction, okay!).
